I keep banging on to anyone I meet what a truly fabulous time we had in Jordan. You made it so much fun and it looked effortless! Thank you so much. I mean it when I say you made my year.
FRANCES SIMPSON FROM THE UK, WHO TRAVELLED ON OUR 2021 JORDAN SMALL GROUP TRIP
In 2018, I took ‘a trip of a lifetime’ with Sir Nicholas Soames, Sir Winston Churchill’s grandson, on the Rovos Train in South Africa to retrace Churchill's Boer War experience. It was wonderful in so many ways, beginning with being in Christopher Wilmot-Sitwell’s good company and, of course, the pièce de résistance, Sir Nicholas, who is the most delightful person, with an accessible personality and all the charm, wit and intelligence of his grandfather. It is these types of trips and cazenove+loyd’s amazing connections that make them a superlative travel company in every way.
ANGÈLE PARLANGE FROM NEW ORLEANS, USA, WHO TRAVELLED ON OUR 2018 SOUTH AFRICA SMALL GROUP TRIP
I highly recommend cazenove+loyd due to their impeccable service and attention to detail. My experience in Jordan was beyond my expectations. I felt incredibly lucky to have had the inside track to Jordan and visit many places with special privileges such as the Kings Horses stables. The ultimate travel experience. Truly beyond luxury.
There just couldn't have been a better way to drink in the whole flavour of unspoilt Cuba in eight marvelous days than hopping aboard Henrietta Loyd's wonderful small group trip to Cuba.
Having been on several group trips with Henrietta I can honestly say that she is not just an excellent leader - friendly, competent and cool, but also a delightful travelling companion with a marvellous sense of humour and genuine enthusiasm for what she does and where she goes. Don’t leave home without her!
Henrietta did the most wonderful job of stewarding our group through what was, at times, quite a demanding itinerary and always managed a gracious smile, despite her instructions being, on occasion, 'lost in translation'.
cazenove+loyd offered the best of all worlds on their private charter of the luxurious Belmond Orcaella that motored slowly up the Irrawaddy River in Burma. Side trips by foot down rural lanes and longer ventures on land combined with superb dining and service on-board where several relaxing lounge areas were perfect for watching the scenery and everyday life go by.
It was great to have William Shawcross on the trip and he was very good at making time for one to one chats and his observations were always interesting. The lecture in Siem Reap on the temples was fascinating. It was important that you kept breaking the group down into smaller numbers, but good that it was not always the same pairings.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during the trip with cazenove+loyd. We loved the river journey, the sightseeing tours, and all the parties, i.e. the boat ride in the setting sun, the dance performance on the beach, etc... You really know how to make a trip special. In short, a memorable experience! We hope there will be more to come. We also had a good time with our fellow travellers, although our communication was not as fluid, due to the language barriers. But we felt very much at ease socializing or just being the two of us. Thanks again for all the care and time you dedicated to make the Mekong Delta Journey so interesting and pleasurable.
The Aqua Mekong was exquisitely comfortable with delicious food and the experiences were excellently crafted. All in all it was a marvellous journey through the past and the present.
